Wendy Wedding officiant Sunset Wedding Network Tucson and Phoenix Arizona and San Carlos and Yucatan Mexico

WENDY

 

I am British and have lived in the United States for over forty years spending the last nineteen years in the beautiful, Tucson, Arizona desert. I still have a refreshing British accent, which is often complimented! I was mentioned in BBC America's "10 British things in Tucson" and I am #7!

I started officiating over twelve years ago. I was the officiant to start our network and we have now grown eight officiants!

 

I have double credentials for wedding officiating.  There are two reasons I became a wedding officiant:

 

First, and most importantly, I had lost faith in ever falling in love and finding my true match because of the catastrophic outcome of my first marriage. At a potluck almost twelve years ago, completely unexpectedly, I met the love of my life, whom I now refer to as my prince. My prince is an amazing father to my three adult daughters and an incredible husband.  Our love inspired me to become an officiant/minster so that  I could marry others and carry over the love to them.

Secondly, when I was in High School in Northern California, because my teachers really liked my British accent, I was always asked to speak in front of the class.  By the time I was ready to graduate from High School I had a complex about public speaking. So, I also decided to become an officiant to improve my public speaking skills.  I must say I have improved above and beyond my expectations!

 

I look forward to helping create a personalized, lovely wedding for you and officiating on your special day, the first day of the rest of your lives together.

MICHAEL

 

I am originally from the Chicago area where I attended St Emily's catholic school.  In 1994 I moved to Tucson, AZ to attend The University of Arizona where I graduated in 1997.  I went on to get my Master's degree, and by then there was no leaving Tucson.

My lovely wife and I were married by an officiant in Tucson in 2007.  I married the love of my life, now I want to marry you and the love of your life! 

 

I want to bring joy and happiness to peoples' lives by providing affordable traditional and same-sex officiating / minister services.  I am primarily a non-denominational officiant, although I have no issues mentioning God or incorporating religious elements to your ceremony.  We can customize your ceremony together to fit your circumstances and desires.   

SARAH

​I became inspired to carry the torch of my parents and also start marrying couples and spreading the love. Just like my parents, I want to bring joy and happiness to couples lives by providing affordable, traditional, and same-sex wedding officiating services.

 

​I am a single mother of a beautiful baby girl who is the center of my universe! I also enjoy all thing crafty. My interests include music, fashion and spending quality time with my daughter and parents.

ARDISS

 

Originally from southern CA, I’ve lived in many cities in the US and Australia. I’ve been a wedding officiant here in Tucson since 2013 and I love every minute of it! From getting the request, to conversing (perhaps meeting) with the person requesting my officiant services, getting to know you and your beloved, discovering what you want in your unique ceremony, to officiating the wedding. I might even shed a tear with you!

I’ve officiated weddings at the top of Mt. Lemmon, at Mile Marker #9 on the way up, in Buckeye Prison and everything in between. The many couples I have married have been delightfully varied, I particularly enjoy officiating LGBTQ+ weddings, seeing couples finally being able to marry after years of being together REALLY warms my heart. I would absolutely be honored to officiate your wedding, anybody, anywhere (almost), anytime!

PAMELA

 

“I pronounce you Married” are some of my favorite words to say.  I truly consider it an honor to officiate celebrations of love.  As a resident in the Phoenix area for 40 years, I am available for elopements, full scale weddings and handfastings.
As a non-denominational, LGBTQ friendly officiant with nearly 20 years of experience, I will walk you through the planning process and joyfully lead you through the ceremony we create together. Your ceremony can be non-religious, religious or civil. You are encouraged to include family or cultural traditions.  I promise that you (and your guests) will laugh and cry as some of the most important words of your lives are spoken. 

 

What makes me the officiant for you?  I am very flexible on format, vows and locations. I serve all couples including LGBTQ, Interracial and Interfaith couples.  I even provide a few photos of your day for you to enjoy while you wait for your professional shots.  I love what I do and I want your day to be amazing.

I am truly passionate about helping you create a heartfelt celebration for one of the most memorable days of your life.
